The beach is not well maintained and could use a good grading to pick up the trash. I have a pet peeve and it is cigarette butts lying all over. NASTY! Please grade your beach and it would be soooo much cleaner.

No skim boarding, it's a beach and that is one of the main reason to be there. Needs a good cleaning especially by the lifeguard stands.

No lifeguards or charge for parking before 9am - we made it a regular weekend trek, get in before 8am and out by 9am - no traffic, no crowd, just a relaxing time sitting on the beach and watching the waves.

There is something for everyone and you can come almost any time of year, enjoy games and food. The boardwalk beach can be a bit crowded and not the neatest - people really need to stop being so inconsiderate by leaving trash on the beach - but we always enjoy it. The reservation is also a great beach if you... More

A great way to spend the day on a nice sandy beach. The sun was nice and the views along the river were great. There is a campground there too, but it does not offer much shade. My favorite part was sitting along the Merrimack River. It did not look that wide but there were some pretty good sized ships... More

Salisbury is a great little beach town to visit. The center beach area is being rebuilt after a storm this winter caused damage but a new boardwalk is being built. The reservation is awesome and if you like to camp this is a great place right on the ocean.

Our sister-in-law was born here and she insisted that we experience her childhood. You can still feel it... a nice white beach, the arcade, the ice cream shops, music by the water, fun restaurants. We loved it!

This is one of the loveliest beaches in the northeast. Sure the water is cold, but the views are lovely. The walk to the Merrimack River jetty is delightful and it doesn't take much luck to see seals or even a bald eagle! To top it all off there are great bathrooms that are even open off season and there... More

This beach is average. It's nice to be on the ocean and this beach is clean. However, it has a very coarse sand and the drop-off down to the water is significant so it's not really great for kids due to the undertow and depth of the water. Also, not great for building castles or exploring. Lots of teens and... More
